Bring Me the REMIX of Zilla Rocca: Douglas Martin


For Week 2 of the remixin’ jawnage, I hit up the venerable Douglas Martin aka Fresh Cherries from Yakima aka Blurry Drones.  It’s no secret we’re homies, and yes that is the one of the reasons  I wanted homie to put in work on the remix thang.

Collaborative projects aside, Douglas is a monster on the boards, which isn’t the first thing you would think by his penchant for small t-shirts and acoustic guitars.  But I’ve been lucky enough to hear lots of his beats over this calendary year and rarely, if ever, do I not get the screwface.  The latest Zilla Rocca-Approved Screwface is evident on his remix of “The First Order of Business.”

Head over to 33jones to download it!



  1. NOW, this beat is DOPE AS SHIT. But, I still like the original better. I wasn’t really feelin the flow of your track on this beat until I reached the later half of the song. Right at the “you’re a text message full of stupid ass typo’s” part, to be exact, is when I was like, okay, this does work!

  2. Oh shit. My favorite song on your mixtape because of your flow and the beat, but shit, this is amazing. Indie rock should exist solely to be sampled at this point, right?

  3. Dude is no joke. I have yet to hear something you guys have done together that I didn’t like and really enjoy. This remix is pretty awesome and I’m psyched about the Shadowboxers release! P.S. I wasn’t kiddin you should get your ass to Seattle asap cause you’ll love it.

  4. y’all are far too kind. thanks so much for the compliments!

    brandon: it’s utterly surprising that indie-rock is such an untapped resource when it comes to sampling. i’m sure most of them would be pretty cheap to clear, and if the rapper is well-known enough, it would create instant pub from pitchfork.
